When I heard about the 'Stuff Your Stockings With Books' event, I knew exactly what I wanted to blog about. Books, of course! And what could be more fitting? A book lover chatting to a bunch of other lovely book lovers.
So, it's holiday season. And what does that mean? Aside from the religious elements, and the spending time with family, of course. It means there are lots of new books floating around and for me, plenty of time to read them! This Christmas I'll be abroad on holiday, back just in time for New Year, which is when I'll catch up with my family. So being away means I get to spend some quality time with my Kindle. The laptop is staying at home, so no work for me. Just lots and lots of reading... and probably some writing, or at least scribbling down of ideas. Well, you can't expect a writer to go anywhere without a notebook, can you?
As much as I love reading, I'll have to do something else while I'm away, though. No problem! Something else I love doing, regardless of the time of year or where I am, is people watching. And what better a place to people watch than a foreign country where many people behave differently because nobody knows them. Add in some alcohol and festive cheer and you have a recipe for some very interesting sights. Not only will that be thoroughly entertaining, but you never know when creative inspiration will strike.
And voila! We've come full circle. From reading books to taking a break and people watching, there's a damn good chance that said people watching will end up in one of my books. Not ad verbatim of course, because that could potentially be very dull. But such is the life of a writer... nothing is safe! Inspiration comes from everywhere, and hopefully lots of writers (including myself) will find some excellent inspiration this holiday season, which may well give you some fabulous books to read next holiday season.
And what more could any book lover ask for, but more books?! Happy Holidays!
